Israeli airstrike kills Gaza militant

An Israeli airstrike killed a Gaza militant and wounded another early on Sunday, after they fired mortar shells at Israeli tanks on an incursion into the southern Gaza Strip, Palestinian medics and eyewitnesses told AFP.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said that a strike had taken place but she did not immediately have further details. The exchange took place after a three-day lull between the sides brought some respite from a latest spike in cross-border fighting.
